Our Rheumatology Specialists
Do you suffer from joint pain, loss of motion in a joint, or even inflammation, swelling, and a warmth in a joint or affected area? If your pain is severe or persists for more than a few days you should see your primary care physician, who may refer you to our practice. Early diagnosis in arthritic conditions, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, can result in better patient outcomes, but symptoms are often difficult for non-rheumatologists to diagnose.
With more than more than 50 years of combined experience, our rheumatologists treat arthritis, certain autoimmune diseases and musculoskeletal pain disorders. They will perform a thorough evaluation including medical history and testing such as blood tests, x-rays and scans when needed for an accurate diagnosis.
We are committed to providing a shared understanding of the patient’s illness and a personalized treatment plan.
To provide the best service to our patients, we do require a physician referral.
Conditions we help treat:
- Autoimmune, inflammatory and musculoskeletal diseases such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus
- Dermatomyositis and polymyositis
- Systemic vasculitis
- Spondyloarthropathies including Reiter’s syndrome, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and enteropathic arthritis
Special tests and procedures performed include arthrocentesis and therapeutic joint injections.
